Adele dresses up as The Mask

Adele dressed up as film character The Mask for Halloween.

The 28-year-old singer donned a replica disguise of the one worn by Jim Carrey in the 1994 movie, in which he portrayed the titular character, and a similar suit complete with polka dot tie and his trademark fedora hat to surprise fans.

She shared two snaps of herself in costume, one at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, where she performed on Saturday (29.10.16), and another in Dallas, Texas, where she played a show at the American Airlines Center on Tuesday (01.11.16) and is due to play tonight (02.11.16).

The star - who has four-year-old son Angelo with long-term partner Simon Konecki - opted to let her comical pictures do the talking as she simply wrote on the captions: "Halloween 2016 / Dallas, TX".

'The Mask' also starred Cameron Diaz in her feature film debut, and told the story of Carrey's character Stanley Ipkiss, a shy bank clerk who is transformed into a bizarre green-faced trickster when he finds a mask at his local harbour and puts it on.

Cameron portrayed Stanley's love interest Tina Carlyle in the motion picture and she reportedly auditioned for the part 12 times.

While Adele showed off her comical side in the pictures, she recently admitted to being "frightened" after having her son and suffering from "really bad" postpartum depression.

When asked if she's planning to have another child, she replied: "I'm too scared. I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me ... I didn't talk to anyone about it. I was very reluctant.

"One day I said to a friend, 'I f***ing hate this, and she just burst into tears and said, 'I f***ing hate this, too.' "
